On the Highest Aspirations Podcast, we engage in important conversations about the most rapidly growing student demographic in the United States - English Language Learners. We speak with educators and students, researchers and policy makers, and parents and community members about how we can help all students reach their highest aspirations.   However, there is a gap between the high value Latinx families place on education and the actual attainment of a higher education. For Latinas, this gap is explained partly by strict cultural obligations and gender expectations that often take precedence over higher education aspirations. 2. Language Barrier And The Application Process. Involvement in Education? The evidence is clear. When parents are involved in their child’s schooling, students get better grades, score higher on standardized tests, and drop out less often, as well as have better attendance records, higher aspirations, and more positive attitudes about school and homework. What’s more, these.   But what won’t hasten new hiring — and might even dampen job prospects — is the mythical belief that higher education invariably leads to higher employment and better jobs. It doesn’t.
